VIA Partners For On-Demand Gaming Network

From VIA’s press release:

VIA Technologies, Inc, and AceGain today announced the development of the GameDweller Network, an easy-to-use, ultra-secure game delivery service.

The GameDweller network is an online service that allows users to instantly download games for their Eve Mobile Gaming Console. Based on a peer-to-peer infrastructure to ensure robust, secure, and high speed delivery, GameDweller is built upon a combination of Private Key Infrastructure (PKI) and non-PKI technology providing advanced control for digital media management. GameDweller’s advanced Digital Rights Management technology enables flexible licensing control wherein game publishers and developers can specify different licensing rights they wish to offer along with the pricing information for each license.

The GameDweller Network also leverages the advanced features of the VIA PadLock Hardware Security Suite integrated in the VIA Eden-N processor, along with Subscriber Identity Module (SIM) cards, for a unique combination of hardware and software security capabilities to further protect game publishers’ digital products. This technology relies on industry standard AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) cryptography from the VIA PadLock ACE (Advanced Cryptography Engine) and key generation from the VIA PadLock RNGs (Random Number Generators) to assist with Digital Rights Management.

“With the GameDweller network, users of the Eve Handheld Gaming Console will have instant access to any game they wish to play,” commented Wayne Chang, Chief Software Architect, AceGain Inc. “and moving forward with AceGain’s GameONE technology, GameDweller’s functionality can be easily expanded to include AceGain DRAMA for an optimized and efficient virtual distributed network, LiveUpdate for fully automated update management and delivery and P2P networking, content delivery and communication.”

“With the GameDweller network and the Eve Mobile Gaming Console, VIA and AceGain have realized an optimal combination of hardware and software technologies that enable new levels of security and functionality for on-demand gaming,” commented Richard Brown, Associate Vice President of Marketing, VIA Technologies. “Providing this complete package solution is crucial so that gamers can enjoy an ultimate gaming experience with none of the hassle of going out to purchase and install games, or do periodic updates.”
